What does every good slasher movie need? {nm}

Posted by: winstonman78 (a.k.a Dorfman) on Apr 11, 17:16 in response to HarryWarden's post And based on the BBFC classification, it doesn't deliver...

Going by the prices, I thought that maybe MTC had been posted already... guess not. Here ya go   secretstalker on Apr 11, 13:26

So glad I just got back... {nm}   Facto on Apr 11, 13:36

wow 27 for Scream4. dang {nm}   winstonman78 on Apr 11, 13:58

drat, so going by the rule, Scream is gonna do way less than high 40's? Damn that sucks {nm}   Moviesnob on Apr 11, 13:57

weinstein's 2 biggest openers: pg13 scarymovie4 (40mil) & INGLOR 35mil. in a down year, 40 looks like a hard ceiling for scrm4. {nm}   adrenalin112 on Apr 11, 14:06

Definitely. Maybe 30. {nm}   winstonman78 on Apr 11, 14:07

what do you mean down year? {nm}   Moviesnob on Apr 11, 14:48

So far 2011YTD is behind 2010 and 2009   Antibody on Apr 11, 15:08

but the expectation is that its going to be a huge summer. No one is calling it a down year yet {nm}   Moviesnob on Apr 11, 16:00

this time last year we already had 5 movies: Alice, dragon, titans, SHISL, VSDAY all open over 40+mil. so far in 2011: ZERO {nm}   adrenalin112 on Apr 11, 16:17

its a valid point, but i'm not ready to write the year off yet. Its like calling a baseball game after the 3rd inning {nm}   Moviesnob on Apr 11, 16:19

while i believe there are some promising releases this summer: PIRT4 & KFP2. there are others that i think are being wildly overestimated..   adrenalin112 on Apr 11, 16:26

THOR isn't going to open as high as Iron Man 2 last year so the first weekend in May is likely going to be down too {nm}   HarryWarden on Apr 11, 16:27

It's been a down year for sure. This summer is going to come in short. A few summer tent poles are going to bust big time this summer. {nm}   lhayes37 on Apr 11, 16:54

so what does 'the rule' say about RIO? That it'll do higher than MTC? {nm}   jane_citizen on Apr 11, 15:02

Depends. For the rule to apply, difference between RS and MTC should be significant. Is it significant here? Ca 35 vs 40.   Facto on Apr 11, 15:32

Guess people finally realized that Craven hasn't made a good film in years and this looks like a rehash of the other 3 {nm}   HarryWarden on Apr 11, 14:59

And based on the BBFC classification, it doesn't deliver what every good slasher movie needs {nm}   HarryWarden on Apr 11, 15:03

Hah, my gut about Scream 4 may be right! {nm}   numbersix_99 on Apr 11, 15:26
